Hi! It’s Candy with a shimmery card. The first time I saw this technique from Elizabeth Craft Designs, I was in love. It is fun, easy and amazingly beautiful. Here’s how to do it …

1. Cut black cardstock 4.25″ x 11″. Score and fold in half.

2. Cut Pink and Purple Iridescent Shimmer Sheetz as follows:

Purple: (4) 1″ x 1″, (2) 2″ x 2 1/8″

Pink: (2) 1″ x 2 1/8″, (1) 4″ x 7/8″

4. Use your StazOn ink pad to color the raised portion of the embossed Shimmer Sheetz.

6. Cut out label (from Katie Label Pivot Card) from Shimmer Sheetz. You must use the Metal Adaptor Plate for this.

7. Adhere a piece of Transparent Double Sided Adhesive to black cardstock, large enough to die cut the word Hello. Die cut Hello and adhere to label. Add Glitter Dots.
